New Zealand: A second and quite different look at native bush

with 13 comments

In contrast to the last post’s horizontally oriented and at least partially maintained landscape, here’s a distinctly vertical and thoroughly wild one I saw in the mountains along SH 6 between Greymouth and Punakaiki on February 17th. No one was about to try planting crops on a slope this steep, so the native bush survived here.

(By the way, if you scroll down into the comments section of yesterday’s post, you’ll see how different and how much more abstract that landscape photograph becomes after it’s been rotated 90°.)
